Here’s why our customers love Cookon

Chefs and experienced restaurant owners who swear by Cookon do so because Cookon’s Australian made, hardy and long-lasting commercial kitchen equipment can be relied on for years of trouble-free service. Once installed, our customers rarely need to think about the product again except for typical, regular maintenance.

With hundreds of covers to get through every day, in every venue, they need kitchen supplies that go the distance and won’t let them down. They’ve said “it has to be Cookon” for homegrown hardiness and service you can count on. Cookon has always been focused on simple, practical innovations that help hospitality businesses reduce hassle and function reliably.

Because Cookon is based in Brisbane, Australia, we can manufacture and freight to anywhere in Australia much faster than an import, and we’re always at the end of the phone if you need help or spare parts. Our industry-leading Three Year Parts and Labour Warranty is our promise of our legendary performance.


Quality. Longevity. Service. Performance.

Quality build

We take such care in design and build, one of our customers has even called our products “indestructible”! Looking at the internal welds in the two products shown, you can see the difference. The Cookon hand-welded seam is designed to hold two surfaces together permanently. The competitor’s (machine weld) is not as safe, nor as structurally sound.

We’ve been working with culinary experts in Australia for over 40 years, designing and building for high-performance kitchens. A lot has changed over that time, but our commitment to Australian-made quality has been unwavering. We’re convinced our solid reputation for reliability has been forged by keeping our manufacturing in-house, and our customers satisfied. We’re here whenever you need us.

Built incredibly tough, with heavy-duty parts and materials, Cookon just keeps cooking on. We’ve got Cookon units still in use today that have been going strong for over 25 years, meaning we offer possibly the lowest cost per year of ownership in the market. We back that with an industry-beating 3 year warranty.

"In 1990 I purchased a CookOn Gas Barbecue/Oven top. I still have it, I still use it, it cooks great food, Turkey, Chicken, Roast Beef, Hams. After 33 years the only thing that does not work is the electro/Piezzo lighting system. That stopped in the first few years, but so does every other one. I have never cared and light it with a gas lighter. The thermostat still works in Fahrenheit and Centigrade. I am 75 now and consider this product to be one of the best that I ever purchused. If your company ever needs a product reference please ask them to contact me. "

“We were looking at another top-of-market brand but the unique ripple design of the Cookon commercial fryer pan bases halves our gas bill, because it doubles the amount of heated steel touching the oil. It was a no-brainer business decision for us to buy 6 more.”
